I think the pitch actually has some bounce in it, which is good. Be interesting to see how the extra pace and height of Jordan goes on here. He might be able to get the Indians hopping around on the back foot.
India is back to usual business! I think Dhoni makes choices just to say "to hell with you all, I will make my own decisions even if it is nowhere near logical". The wicket has pace, and they bring in Pankaj Singh when you could have brought in Varun Aaron. And then now the pitch looks good for batting and its going to be hard to pick 20 wkts on this pitch, and you add an extra batsman at the cost of a specialist spinner.
India have been doing this throughout this series. Luckily, England are in a rut right now and thereby gave us the Lord's win. Ian Chappell is completely right (Dravid might disagree with Chappell and Dravid might have this godlike status in India; but I disagree with Dravid). Dhoni HAS TO GO as test captain. And he should take Duncan Fletcher along with him. Sadly, that's not going to happen (for Fletcher, till the WC and Dhoni until he himself hangs up his boots).
